The Fall River Arts and Culture Coalition

The Fall River Arts and Culture Coalition

Formed in March of 2019, community members came together around a common mission - Arts, Culture, and Economic Prosperity for the City of Fall River. The Fall River Arts & Culture Coalition (FRACC) is a committee of the One SouthCoast Chamber and the Bristol County Chamber.

FRACC consistently empowers the community by nurturing creativity and making a lasting positive impact on Fall River. With captivating murals, national grants, and impactful community initiatives, FRACC has firmly established itself as a key player in enhancing the city's cultural landscape.
